Pentax-A 28-80mm sloppy feel?

As part of a camera purchase from eBay, I picked up a Pentax-A 1:3.5-4.5 80-200mm zoom. I must say that the front part of the mechanism has a distinctly sloppy and loose feel about it, but I don't know whether this is an intrinsic quality of this zoom (which I don't think has the highest reputation). I want to put it back on eBay, and obviously if it's faulty I want to declare that. Can anyone who is familiar with this zoom can give me any feedback on it?
